Cancer is one of the leading causes of death. What if there was a safe, natural herb that could work for nearly every type of cancer? According to Dr. William LaValley, who focuses most of his clinical work on the treatment of cancer, curcumin—a derivative of turmeric, and the pigment that gives the curry spice turmeric its yellow-orange color—may fit the bill.
It’s a natural compound that has been extensively researched, and has been found to have numerous health applications. Interestingly, curcumin appears to be universally useful for just about every type of cancer, which is really odd since cancer consists of a wide variety of different molecular pathologies. You wouldn’t necessarily suspect that there would be one herb that would work for most of them.
It’s important to note, turmeric spice does not contain enough curcumin to supply the therapeutic dose used in clinical studies to treat disease. If treating an inflammatory condition, Jim LaValle, RPh, ND, suggests supplemental curcumin, 100 to 300 mg standardized extract three times a day with meals. Supplement should be standardized to contain 95% curcuminoids per dose. Click To Keep Reading
